CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL OF OUR BAR FINALISTS AT MR. B’S!! PLEASE READ ALL OF THIS INFORMATION BEFORE ASKING QUESTIONS! Many of your questions may be answered below. AFTER you have read all of this info, please “LIKE” this picture. This is how you’ll confirm you have read this and will be attending the Bar Finals. :-) Info about the Finals and a few Performance Tips: Date: Wednesday Aug. 30th Check In Time: Check in between 8:30-9:30pm – All contestants must be checked in by 9:30pm If you do not arrive on time, you run the risk of your competition spot being given to an alternate. If work does not allow for you to arrive by 9:30pm, please contact Julie directly prior to the contest date and discuss options with her. Contest Time: Approx. 9:30-1:00am. Contest Sign In: When you arrive, please check in with Julie and fill out a song slip with your name and contest song. One singer will be chosen to perform with Persuasion Band on Fri, Sep 1. during the 9:45pm show on the Soaring Eagle & Casino Stage. If you win but ARE NOT able to perform that night with the band, please write “NO PERSUASION” on your song slip. This way the judges will know you are only performing for the chance to compete at Arts Beats & Eats on Saturday Sep 2nd.. Results: Between 1:00-1:30am. All singers must stay until the end of the night for the results to be announced. Each of the winners will receive an information sheet for the Arts Beats & Eats Finals as well as a Free Entry Pass into Arts Beats & Eats. Cover/Entry Fee: None…but please remember to SUPPORT THE BAR WITH YOUR PURCHASES THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT and take care of your wait staff. The kitchen will be open until 11/11:30pm that night. Order of Performance: The rotation order is determined as a “blind draw”. Each singer will have a song slip turned face down. When a singer comes up to perform, they will first draw the next singer. Therefore each singer will have a 1 song notice that they are next. This also gives everyone a fair order determination. Alternates: Alternates are encouraged to attend! Those who sign in first are the first to be chosen IF alternates are needed. It will depend on how many of the other contestants show up and what time allows for. It will be determined no later than 10:30pm if alternates will be added into the contest. Duplicate Songs: You are allowed to sing the same song at the Bar Finals AND AB&E. Also multiple singers can sing the SAME SONG at the BAR FINALS ONLY. However, there can be no repeat songs at AB&E. Therefore if 2 people qualify at the Bar Finals with the same song, the higher scoring singer has the right of first refusal for AB&E. Profanity: There is NO PROFANITY allowed at Arts Beats & Eats. Therefore if you pick a song that has profanity, please practice and use the “clean” version for the Bar Final. This will ensure you can perform the clean version and you won’t accidentally use the words at AB&E. If you use profanity in the Bar Final, you face disqualification from the contest. Song Length: Please keep your song choice to under 5 minutes. If your song is longer than 5 minutes, your song may be faded out. Warm-Ups & Regular Karaoke: Warm-ups are not guaranteed. Only a few people MIGHT be able to sing a warm-up song depending on who signs in first. Karaoke priority before the contest may be given to customers NOT in the contest, as they will not have a chance to sing during the night. After the contest, there MIGHT be time for regular karaoke. Once again, priority will first be given to those who were not in the contest. Performance Info and Tips We will have a panel of 6-8 judges. You will be judged on your vocals (Pitch & Control, Vocal Tone and Range) AND your Stage Presence, and Overall Effect on the audience and judges. Pick a song you are comfortable with! Complete lyric memorization is not required, but pick one where you know most of the words. If you are staring at the words most of the time, you will lose points. We will be looking for a wide variety of genres, styles of singers and those who will contribute to an entertaining show at Arts Beats & Eats. We cannot have an entire show filled with ballads, so please consider doing an upbeat song! Pick a song that is a crowd pleaser! Ballads are nice and allowed, however fun/upbeat songs that get a crowd involved are often easier to score higher points in the Stage Presence Category and the Audience Interaction can affect the judges overall opinion. Be prepared to PERFORM as well as sing! WE CAN NOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH. Remember you are putting on a show at Arts Beats & Eats! You will need to be able to show Stage Presence and Charisma as well as Strong Vocals! If you just stand there with no presence and sing, you may not advance. Most of all…..HAVE FUN!!! This is going to be a long but very exciting night! You are going to see some fantastic singers! We can’t wait to see everyone perform! Let us know if you have any questions and good luck to everyone!
